|Abstract:||This project examines a network of informal digital makerspace clubs with over 100 adolescent participants across four continents. A key component to developing the community for collaboration was the use of online global meet-ups, or facilitated video conference sessions where participants from different sites share projects and feedback. Meet-ups were key to establishing social trust and motivating project collaboration across sites. This paper examines participant discourse at different stages of the community formation process. Data from three online meetings with U.S. and Kenyan students were analyzed using epistemic network analysis (ENA). Findings show significant changes in the patterns of discourse corresponding to the development of the community over time. The initial emphasis on self-awareness and superficial information sharing shifted toward peer teaching and knowledge acquisition after six months. These observations demonstrate how the depth of interactions within online global meet-up culture evolved into more substantive interactions towards collaborative learning.|
